Among the Australians upgrading their shower, 68 per cent increased its size, with 64 per cent switching over to rainfall showerheads or 62 per cent handheld showerheads.
Around 22 per cent of homeowners included a bathtub large enough to fit a couple while 12 per cent upgraded their showers to accommodate two people.
The study found white was the preferred colour for walls, cabinets and bench tops - and often accented by grey flooring.
Up to 12 per cent of homeowners are getting high-tech upgrade to their bathrooms, including digital controls and built-in sound for showers and self-cleaning and overflow protection for toilets.

Such excess is surely killing the environment, and hurting the poor! Such unequal use of resources must be stopped!
I insist that taxes be raised in the US and all American businesses be crippled immediately!
But that world consists of squirrels, deer and the occasional coyote.
I saw a house like that when I was househunting in Westchester County NY. The shower was pure glass wall to the outdoors and so large they used a wool tartan shower curtain.
Yours sounds PERFECT!
Hmm. I’m outdated by a mere 30 years or so. Bathroom upgrades are pretty pricey. I’ve changed the sink fixtures and cabinet pulls, that’s about it.
For most people, the oversized tubs look nice but in practice they take too long to fill and the people who can afford them discover that they don't have time to take long soaking baths and they lapse into extended disuse.
I’d also hate to lean over to clean the large tubs. And how do you clean behind and under the freestanding ones?
Perfect for dating and bringing home younger women. (If I were single.)
A sound of rain recording and a rain video would be kind of cool.
Why are you doing the cleaning? Get a maid. A US citizen or someone legally authorized to work in the US of course.
I drilled out the restrictor on my shower head to increase the flow
I like white. Easy to clean and see dirt. I hate rain showers. Whats the point. It just drips a lot of water. I put in two new showers for me and my wife in two houses. Sliding frosted doors. Clear doors require a lot of cleaning. I have 3 jets coming out of the wall that work like a car wash. Then there is the regular shower above and the hand held. I can turn on any one or any number of them. It does the trick. And I love taking a shower.
(I mean the nature, not you and your wife showering together in the window) (not that Im saying that isnt also a beautiful sight, but you know... oh jeez, Ill shut up now. )
I love modern. Ever since I lived in a beach community modern white house I want to buy one.
All that garbage looks so retail, or hi rise commercial. Gak~. And what they want to redo a kitchen or a couple of baths nowadays, one could purchase an entire home in some venues. No joke.
